1 To the chief musician, a psalm of David. How long, O Lord, wilt thou forget me continually! how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
2 How long shall I have to devise resolves in my soul, with grief in my heart daily? how long shall my enemy exalt himself over me?
3 Look down, answer me, O Lord my God! Enlighten my eyes, that I may not sleep the sleep of death;
4 That my enemy may not say, I have overcome him; that my assailants may not be glad when I am moved.
5 But I trust in thy kindness, let my heart be glad because of thy salvation:
6 I will sing unto the Lord, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.
